The Brussels government is making the Covid Safe Ticket mandatory for most hospitality and cultural events. What does that mean for your visit at ARGOS?

Visitors with a Covid Safe Ticket or a European Digital Corona Certificate will be able to visit us and see our exhibitions. Reservations will no longer be necessary, which means you can just drop by whenever you're in the neighbourhood and feel like visiting us! Following recent developments and new measures (17 November), we're reintroducing the face mask and the social distancing.
